One of the things I realized while boondocking in Montana was that I’ve done a lot of alone-time campering over the past few years and right now I have a unique opportunity to visit some old friends. As well, this is my “finding home tour” and that isn’t just about location – community is a giant slice of that pie chart. That’s when I decided to not continue north to Glacier National Park and instead head West to friends.
On that idea, I headed to Spokane to stay with friends. We headed to my friend’s parents house for dinner, and they set us to work.
It was great helping family work on their house. They were filling in a walkway with pretty stones. As a reward we got to eat delicious just plucked tomatoes from their garden.
We had a night out the next night, and this was our view from the restaurant. There’s a river and waterfalls that run through the heart of Spokane. It’s a really lovely city!
My friends took me to feed a trash eating goat, who has been eating trash since the World’s Fair was in Spokane in 1974
and we walked around downtown during sunset. A lot of the structures still stand from the 1974 World’s Fair. I think this was a giant tent, with exhibitors inside. Since then, it lost its canvas, and is now this interesting sculpture.
On my last day, we visited the lush gardens, including a beautiful Japanese Garden
and Argos, and my truck, got a bath at the same place!
Contrary to how happy Argos looks in that pic, he was definitely not a happy doggie!
It was great staying with my Spokane friends and getting a tour of the city!
Next time I visit, I’ll have to take my kayak out on the river!
